Guante (March 26, 2014) (Feminist Paper Doll Project 2014)

March 26, 2014

Guante's spoken word poem "Ten Responses to the Phrase 'Man Up'" outlines the implications of misogyny on men in our society. From the crass to the heartfelt Guante (aka Kyle Myhre) outlines how creating a rigid binary of gender roles, means that men cannot be scared, be weak or feel powerful without dominating another person. This rigid binary of genders means that all conversations between men must follow prescribed dialogues.

Conversely, opening up gender roles and breaking the misogynist stereotypes allows men- people to feel weak, be nurturing and like things because. Feminism needs all genders otherwise it is not feminism. The full range of emotions and human expressions should be available and open AND safe for all humans.
